I'm also celebrating a very busy week, during which I've written and edited lots and lots of words. It's a funny old game, this writing business. Sometimes the words flow really easily and I can churn out an article or story without too much wringing of hands. Other times, I struggle to write a picture caption.
I'll tell you what else can be challenging: people's response when I tell them what I do. They say:
'Have you written anything I might have read?' I don't know: what have you read?
'Do you write fiction or just non-fiction?' Both, but what makes you think facts are easier?
'Will you take a look at my book?' Well, that depends how long it is and why you want me to look.
And my particular favourite:
'Oh yes, I'm going to write, when I have the time.' So you think it's that easy, and it's something that can be slotted in between other, more important tasks? By all means, have a go.
Enjoy the weekend, folks.
